Clean water. You probably take it for granted. But the lack of it is threatening the health, and even lives, of countless people around the world.
Agua Yaku, which means water in both Spanish and Quechua, is helping to provide clean water to rural communities in Bolivia, South America.
It uses very basic techniques, and the simplest technology. In fact, several wells are drilled by hand. Drilling a new well directly involves members of the communities, which establishes their ownership and responsibility right from the outset, as well as an understanding of how the well works.
Remarkably cost-efficient, and supported by a gifted international team, Agua Yaku is bringing community to life!
